Pregnant Women Sought for Research Study

March 27, 2019

The Physical Activity in Pregnancy Lab is seeking healthy pregnant women who are between the ages of 18-40 and in early pregnancy to participate in a study to measure the accuracy of a pregnancy physical activity questionnaire. 

Women will be asked to visit the UMass Amherst Center for Personalized Health Monitoring for 2 separate, 1-2 hour sessions during each trimester. The first and second session will consist of completing the pregnancy physical activity questionnaire. The sessions are separated by a week of free-living data collection in which participants will also be asked to wear an activity monitor and a small wearable camera for 7 days while going about their normal daily activities. 

Participants will receive a $50 Target Gift Card during each trimester, for a maximum of $150 for 3 sessions during their pregnancy, as an appreciation for their contribution and their time.
